Flipkart, meanwhile, is the subject of renewed takeover interest with Amazon reported to be considering an acquisition. However, it seems that a deal with US retail giant Walmart is more likely, according to sources. Flipkart is India’s biggest e-commerce retailer by volume, and along with Amazon India controls the lion’s share of the e-commerce market in India.
